I am a recent college graduate currently pursuing a career in publishing in New York City. My interest in tutoring and the publishing industry stem from the same source: I want to help instill in others the same love of learning I have felt throughout my life. Whether it's getting lost in a good book or feeling the thrill of excitement at finally solving a difficult math problem, I feel that learning should be fun and viewed as a challenge, not a chore. Throughout my academic career, I have been a well-rounded student, excelling in math as well as language and literature. I am a notoriously good test-taker, a skill developed from solid study habits that I hope to pass on to future students. For me, tutoring is my way of giving back to my community and paying forward the help I've gotten from teachers, mentors, and fellow students throughout my life.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

You know the old proverb about teaching a man to fish rather than giving him a fish? That about sums it up. I try to give students the tools and strategies they need in order to solve new problems on their own. I focus on guiding them to find answers for themselves rather than simply showing them the path.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

During a first session, I like to get the student to give me an overview of what they've been learning so far and what specific areas they've been struggling with. Then, if they have some available, I like to do some practice problems together, so I can see how they learn and how best to help them.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The role of a tutor is never to just give out answers. I teach my students strategies for how to find the answers for themselves, guiding them in the right direction, and making sure that they understand and can explain how they arrived at their answers.
